Day 65 : How to segment citrus fruits

Most people do not like the roughage that comes with the citrus fruits like oranges and grapefruits. Roughage is the white colored substance that divides the fruit pulp into segments. Occasionally having them is good as it helps with digestion. But just because it doesn’t taste as good so people generally avoid it. Also segmenting them helps us in garnishing as well as for preparing of jellies and the sort.

This is how a citrus fruit can be segmented. I have taken an orange for illustration.


Slice off the top and bottom of the orange so that it can lay flat on the board.

Lay it flat on one of the cut edges.


Using a knife, slice away the sides of the orange ( orange colored peel along with the white.

This is how your orange is now. You can see the white colored segments.

Cut through each of the segment to remove the pulp.


Continue till each pulp has been removed.


Now use it up for your decorations or just gobble them up. 😃
